Chico PD Response to Governor’s Stay at Home Order

Press Release- Statement from Chief Madden


On November 19th the Chico Police Department became aware of a Limited Stay at Home Order issued by the Governor
for counties in the purple tier. The order goes into effect on Saturday (November 21) and restricts non-essential work,
movement, and gatherings between the hours of 10:00 pm and 5:00 am. The order will remain in effect until 5:00 am on
December 21, 2020.
The Chico P.D. will continue to respond to any incident with the potential for criminal behavior or impacts to public safety
but will not be responding to calls based solely on non-compliance with this order. Chico Police Officers have been
instructed to continue to educate the public regarding these emergency orders while in their performance of their duties.
As we have during this entire pandemic, we continue to encourage responsible behavior.
I would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.
